What a great bunch of readers!  In an assembly to reward the great reading going on at Spanish Oaks, we had a special visitor do some magic tricks for us!  Ronald McDonald himself celebrated 1,056,043 minutes read by our students.  Our bike winners are Adaline Rowbury from Mr. Rigby's sixth grade class, and Logen Bringhurst from Olsen/Dimmick's third grade class.  Congratulations to those two students, as well as to all the book and poster winners.  Also, a special thanks to our PTA for setting up such a motivating and fun assembly!  You rock, Mrs.
